| Just a blog from someone who loves to communicate

| Just a blog from someone who loves to communicate:
Hi all or whoever may be out there, Well this is the first day of 2014, I will be 77 this year, now just where do the years go, ? When I hear people talk about the old days, like 1970 or such I think to myself, ‘’what are they on about, that wasn’t so long ago’’ but it was wasn’t it ! over forty years, now I think that’s a generation, and when you consider people at 44 are maybe doctors, or bankers, lawyers, directors of companies, even have their own company, it makes you think doesn’t it, I look upon 1970 was when I got married again, my girls were growing up and these doctors, lawyers etc. I was talking about, were just being born. , yet it still only seemed like last week. , and on a sombre note, I won’t live to see out another forty years, ENOUGH< ENOUGH, it’s getting morbid.
How was Christmas for you folks? I had a nice one, At Karen, my younger daughter Christmas day with all the family and had a lovely Christmas lunch with all the trimmings, then Boxing day at one of my gran daughters, Sarah, she and Ross have a nice new bungalow and wanted to spend their first Christmas in it with the family, she served up an appetising buffet, with more food than we could eat.
I had some lovely and useful presents, I’m fortunate to have such a loving family, may it always continue.
The weather has been pretty grim since Christmas with dreadful floods and high winds, there hasn’t been much respite, I felt so sorry for the hundreds of people who were flooded out of their homes, and the many who lost their electricity over Christmas.
I’ll stop now and maybe have something to blog about in a few days.

Just a footnote, I baked a sponge and fruit loaf to-day to pass the time, my daughter invited me over for dinner, but the weather was just too evil. Byeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  1. Sponge yummy...
    Rain and more too much of it Arlene , today dry and bright but not for long.
    I managed to pop out New Years Eve to the shops. Town was free parking oh goody, only to find half the shops had closed early. It must have skipped my mind , of course it's New Years Eve.
    Hope that 2014 is a very good one for you both.
    Hugs Sheila xx

    1. Goody goody, a comment LOL thank you Sheila, oh I wish we had the days of Live spaces where we 'appeared' to have more friends.
      Yes you are right about the rain and your part of the country is going to get another soaking, I hope you're not affected.I think that could be the reason the shops closed early, not much custom around when the weather's so grim. I went to our local market on Monday, foul day, there were three stalls and they were packing up when I was going home around 11 am. no business. keep well and have a peaceful 2014 hugs to Lucy XX

  2. The weather here has bee evil too. Way below zero temps and lots of snow and I am sick of it and longing for spring!! xx

    1. I think the world and his wife are with you on that one Beth, keep your chin up spring WILL come XX

  3. It's been snowing here for the last two months, Lately it's been -30 C for 3-4 days and then +2C and raining for 2-3 days. Really unsettled weather and very little sun as is normal for Alberta. It's normally Sunny and very cold here in the winter. Glad to hear that you had a good Christmas and good time with relatives. Nice hear. I spent Christmas with family and New Years with friends. Good times all around.

  4. Weather seems to be nasty all over. Prediction of -60 due to wind chill coming here. We went to the store early this morning.
